Strawberry Mango Salsa with Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips

What makes you smile in the springtime? For me, it’s a big bowl of fresh strawberries. For breakfast or snacking or anytime of day, they’re the perfect juicy pick-me-up. Toss handfuls of chopped up kiwi, mango and a kick of jalapeño into the bowl, and you’ve got yourself a zesty, fresh new flavor combo!

Served up with fresh baked, golden cinnamon-sugar chips and a cold cocktail, this fruit salsa would totally hit the spot for springtime party snacking. I could even imagine mixing up a spicy-sweet sangria with the fruit mixture, too!

But then, in my near-ninth-month of pregnancy, my mind often wanders to alcohol. (I may or may not have taken a photo of a bar menu last weekend for summer cocktail inspiration…). Gotta keep up with trends, people!

Mix in a squeeze of lime juice, a sprinkle of cilantro and DIG IN to this scrumptious salsa for your next warm weather party. It’s a breeze to make, as colorful as it is flavorful, and offers a fun twist on the same old salsa-and-chips. You’ll love it!

Feel free to sub the fruit for whatever you like. I picture pineapple, oranges, raspberries and apples in my next fresh, sweet salsa. You just can’t go wrong with any fruit!

Strawberry Mango Salsa with Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips

Yield: Makes about 2 cups salsa // 32 chips

Ingredients:

For the Strawberry Mango Salsa:
1 pint (16 oz.) strawberries
2 large mangoes
4 kiwi fruit
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lime

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips:
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 flour tortillas
Nonstick cooking spray

Directions:

For the Strawberry Mango Salsa: Dice strawberries, mangoes and kiwi into small pieces. Add to a bowl with minced jalapeno, cilantro and lime juice. Stir until well combined. Serve with Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips.

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spray each tortilla with cooking spray and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Cut into eighths (this is easiest with a pizza wheel) and lay out on 2 large lined baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before serving with salsa.

Enjoy!

TIPS
The salsa is best eaten the day it is prepared.
If your salsa needs more sweetness, add a little honey or agave nectar (to taste).

    You’ve done it again, got me craving all these lovely treats of yours, yum!
    I’ve went through a couple of punnets of strawberries myself over the weekend (polished them off along with my breakfast this morning *smiles*), had Scandinavian-style waffles for breakfast on Saturday, mmmm!
    This sounds wonderful though, and I am intrigued by the addition of jalapeño to the fruit salad. I think this needs to be made in the very near future! :D Thanks for always inspiring Georgia, I hope you have a great week! x

    A few years ago, before I started really learning to cook, I made a version of this for my daughter’s CCD party. Somehow, it tasted awful. So I’m definitely going to use your recipe! So simple but so fresh and tasty!

    You always have a great idea, Georgia! This will be a popular salsa in kids’ table and I’ll be there scooping up a big pile of fruits salsa… looks so good. And I like that the tortilla chips are coated with cinnamon and sugar. My kids will LOVE this! I am not creative so I enjoy reading this kind of recipes!

    I meant to comment on this when I first saw it the other day and I’m finally getting around to it — it looks so fresh, vibrant, and delicious! I can’t believe your near your 9th month already, but it probably doesn’t feel like it’s going fast to you. :) Hope all goes well with the end of your pregnancy!
